Las Vegas is well-known for its casinos, entertainment, and nightlife, but when you’re in Sin City, you shouldn’t forget about the phenomenal food.
Living in a Sky apartment on the Las Vegas Strip gives you the perfect opportunity to visit the popular restaurants attached to famous names in fine dining. Read on to discover five of the best celebrity chefs and the eateries they own here in Las Vegas.
Guy Fieri is a prominent chef whose history traces right back to Vegas. Fieri grew up in Ferndale, California, where he began his first entrepreneurial adventure at the age 10 with his own pretzel cart. He studied the culinary arts in France before attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, during which time he worked in various Las Vegas restaurants.
Fieri opened his first restaurant with Steve Gruber in Santa Rosa, California. It wasn’t until a decade later, in 2006, that he won the Next Food Network Star reality show. After this success, he starred in several TV shows and opened multiple restaurants.
In Vegas, you’ll find his El Burro Borracho located inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Serving a variety of Mexican dishes, the menu boasts tacos, burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas. Just remember to save room for the light and crispy churros for dessert!
As the host of Hell’s Kitchen and various other culinary shows, Gordon Ramsay is one of the most recognized chefs today. It’s only natural that he would have a restaurant or two stationed in one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, too.
The Scottish celebrity began his restaurant journey in Europe, where he opened several of his own restaurants in London after studying under many master chefs. Ramsay brought his culinary business to the U.S. in 2006 and now has restaurants all around the world.
Ramsay’s Vegas restaurants provide an impressive lineup of American cuisine, including Gordon Ramsay Steak, Gordon Ramsay Burger, and Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, all located along South Las Vegas Boulevard. If you’re seeking a taste of Britain, try Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips for a quick tourist stop or takeout. Whether you’re looking for a romantic evening, a group outing, or great cocktails, there’s a Gordon Ramsay eatery for every occasion.
One of his more popular restaurants is the award-winning Bazaar Meats at SLS Las Vegas, which is a top-notch steakhouse. Enjoy a variety of steaks and seafood, but be sure to book your reservations early for a fantastic evening you won’t forget.

Michael Mina is an Egyptian celebrity chef and owner of the San Francisco-based restaurant management company Mina Group. Mina studied at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park and has gone on to win multiple awards and cook for various U.S. presidents.
